We spend a lot of time outside during the summer. We try to have as many outdoor activities to enjoy as we can. Recently we started creating fun little seating groups in our yard for spending time together as a family and for entertaining. Our kids loved the idea of having an outdoor gaming table so they could play with friends and with us. We found this fun tutorial online from Shanty-2-Chic, a great blog about DIY from two women.
I loved the idea that we could create this table at home. Also, I loved that it was two women showing us how to make the table. My boys and my girls were impressed by the skills these women had. I loved that they were seeing someone other than a man build and use power tools. it is so important for boys and girls to see strong women. I also loved how simple the tutorial was to follow. Now we have a fun new table to use in the yard, and I didn’t have e to purchase an overpriced item in a big store.
For the full tutorial head on over to Shanty-2-Chic now. They have many amazing tutorials for building and DIY. You can find anything from tables to beds to planters. Check them out and you may just discover a love for a new hobby.
